The original HTC One smartphone is currently getting the brand new Android 4.4.3 KitKat official update in Europe. It is being rolled out right now in phases, so you shouldn’t panic in case the OTA KitKat 4.4.3 Notification hasn’t been sent your way.
Android 4.4.3 Update should be the last KitKat build released for the HTC One M7. HTC is planning on jumping straight to Android L when this will be launched next month. All the changes that other Android devices got after updating to Android 4.4.4 are now incorporated in this KitKat 4.4.3 release.
The original HTC One will get tons of new features and improvements after the Android 4.4.3 KitKat OTA Update is flashed successfully. The official notification has already been reported in Romania and Slovakia, all the other countries should get it by the end of this month. T-Mobile and Sprint are already preparing the release of Android 4.4.3 in the US for the HTC One M8, while Verizon prepares for a mid-September release. There is no official word on the potential HTC One M7 Android 4.4.3 Update release for the United States.
Android 4.4.3 KitKat adds the following changes for HTC One M7: OpenSSL security fixes, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Mobile Networks tweaks, Camera improvements, Gallery app optimization, Settings menu now features Power History and HTC Sync Manager support. The HTC Sense 6.0 update is also included and it comes with tweaks for HTC BoomSound, Extreme Power SavingMod, Motion Launch and Quick Settings.
The Android 4.4.4 security tweaks are included in this release, so we won’t see any other KitKat build until Android L is readied by HTC for release. The update zip measures somewhere over 550 MB, so you should use the Wi-Fi Connection in order to download it on your device. Firmware version is set to 6.09.401.5.
